Well, you can't miss it. The Coronation clocktower has been a feature of Claremont Road for more than a century, and features a strange flickering floodlight set in its base, which adds a disco-like feel to early evenings. When the clocks go forward and back,...More

Whilst Surbiton is quite rightly a popular suburb of London with it's speedy rail access to the centre, it is not an area awash with historic buildings. The clocktower is probably the best known Landmark and is set close to the rail station on the...More

The Clock Tower itself is quite nice and the signage is informative, but as it essentially sits roadside, it seems a little understated.

It's a clock tower near Waitrose. Seriously not a local attraction, and certainly wouldn't bother going out of your way to look at it. If you walk past it great, if not don't bother.

It has the Clock Tower Cafe beside it and just behind is Claremont Gardens, which is an open space and a nice place to sit on a warm day!

This quirky, odd-ball folly is a curious feature of the busy shopping area in Surbiton, sited next to the carpark entry/exit of the popular Waitrose supermarket. Surbiton has few sandstone buildings and most of the fine local churches are some distance from the high streets,...More
